Review


"Whether you’re someone who is newly diagnosed or has been trying to unsuccessfully shed pounds and manage blood glucose for years, Diabetes Weight Loss—Week by Week is the dietary owner’s manual you’ve been looking for. This wonderful guide holds your hand every step of the way during the delicious journey by providing great and practical tips from actual patients who are successfully managing diabetes. The recipes are AMAZING, too!"
—David Grotto, RD, LDN, author of 101 Foods That Could Save Your Life!

"If you’re in search of the best strategy for losing weight to help treat—or even prevent—diabetes, Jill Weisenberger has written a wonderful master plan for you. Chapter by chapter, week by week, the book is packed with specific advice and practical tools, including exercise plans, meal guides, and dining out tactics, that will help you achieve a healthy weight loss."
—Sharon Palmer, RD, author of The Plant-Powered Diet and editor of Environmental Nutrition

"I applaud Jill on compiling such a thorough, easy-to-read, and practical book on nutrition. Although it is focused on people with diabetes, the information really applies to anyone who wants to eat healthier. I found the goals for each week particularly beneficial in keeping me on track. Rather just another fad diet program, this book is focused on opening your eyes to the haves rather than the have nots. I have incorporated many previously overlooked healthy foods into my diet since reading this book."
—Brandy Barnes, MSW, Founder and CEO of DiabetesSisters

"This program should be in the homes of all diabetics to help them manage their weight. It is filled with sound and practical advice that systematically targets the behaviors that lead to weight gain and shows readers how to replace them with healthy habits that they can sustain."
—Barbara Rolls, PhD, author of The Ultimate Volumetrics Diet

"This comprehensive weight-loss guide for people with diabetes will educate you and motivate you to take control of your weight while managing your diabetes at the same time. It's not a drab one-size-fits all kind of plan, which for sure does not work for the masses. Jill Weisenberger takes the approach that everyone is different and that you need to tailor your weight management plan to your life, your preferences, and your health needs. You'll set reasonable goals, learn new skills and strategies, track your progress on innovative monitoring forms, and discover a healthier, happier, and more productive life."
—Steven Edelman, MD, founder and director of Taking Control of Your Diabetes

By Janet Mildrew on July 16, 2012
Format: Paperback
Many people are wanting to improve their eating and other health habits, to improve their diabetes management. There is so much conflicting information, that I find people are very scared of nutrition advice. I am a dietitian and I've been looking for a book like this, meaningful and based on modern science and psychology. I am already recommending this book to patients, caregivers, family members, friends, relatives and co-workers. This book is based on the current view of diabetes education. It is open-minded, comprehensive and it is broken down into understandable chunks, in the form of weeks. If a reader wants to explore a concept, there is a plethora of reference material cited. It seems to hit on the questions and challenges that cause people the most concern. Caregivers and people with diabetes are replete with information, albeit conflicting, about restrictions in the diet. This book nicely changes the paradigm and focuses on what to eat, how to make it more wonderful and healthy, and how to be empowered to take back eating enjoyment. Thank you Ms. Weisenberger, MS, RD, CDE, for the great tool.

I bought this book to give me the theories and education on how to do a permanent lifestyle change on eating. In 2 1/2 weeks I've lost 10 pounds. Even though I'm not diabetic I'm susceptible to it because of organ transplant. I wish they taught this in high school when people are forming their attitudes about how and what to eat. This book is exactly what I was looking for, and I recommend it for anyone.

This book was just what I needed to start losing weight the healthy way. I'm losing weight, getting my diabetes back in control, and keeping the weight off. The chapters are short, easy to read, and really lead you to set goals that you can stick with. I highly recommend this book for anyone trying to lose weight, whether they have diabetes or not.

As a registered dietitian, I frequently get asked for recommendations for books about managing diabetes. This book is now top of my list! I love the way Jill presents all the topics in a logical format - calories first, since it's the most important....then, into topics such as carbohydrates, reading labels, what to eat for breakfast, building muscle, and eating out, too! There's recipes and meal plans, too! The stories from actual clients are also very motivating.

While the basic information in this book is fairly common, the presentation is what makes the difference. It doesn't overwhelm you with facts, figures and rules. Management is achieved one week at a time, one or two small changes at a time. I was pleased that someone took the time to write the book this way, because diabetes is so scary, because it is life-threatening and doctors do not always take the time to explain the information like this book. Even if you've been diabetic for a long time, this book can give you a way to get back in control if you need that. No magic, no mirrors or smoke involved with this method; just you and a better understanding.

Jill has put together a very usable guide for anyone looking for sensible advice on healthier eating and weight loss. The Week by Week format serves up doable objectives, but not too much to get you overwhelmed. I also really like Jill's crisp concise writing style -- there's no beating around the bush or mincing words! Instead the book is chock-full of clear statements that speak the truth, such as, "Food records work," "The truth is there's probably no best diet," and "Limiting your portions might be one of your most important strategies." As a weight management specialist with 20 years of experience, I'm confident that with Diabetes Weight Loss Week by Week you'll learn how to start from wherever you're at, and gradually tweak your eating (and activity) habits so that one day you'll look back with amazement at how far you've come!

As a registered dietitian and certified diabetes educator for close to 30 years, it can be a challenge to find concise and practical nutrition references for those struggling with both diabetes and weight management. This book is a wonderful new resource that I won't hesitate to recommend to my patients and clients. It's just the right size - small enough to be portable and used as a reference throughout the day, but packed with reliable and credible nutrition and fitness guidance to address just about every diabetes and weight management concern. I'll be passing this book around to my diabetes classes and support groups and I'm sure this will be a handy resource for anyone who has diabetes, as well as for those who would like to reduce their risk of diabetes. Even if you don't have diabetes, this is a great value and guide towards healthier living.
